This recipe yields a delicious chicken salad with a blend of flavors and textures. Cooked and diced boneless, skinless chicken breasts are combined with chopped celery and cheddar cheese cubes. The mixture is then bound together with a creamy blend of mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip), accented with a hint of zesty lemon juice and dried dill weed for a subtle herbaceous note. Seasoned with salt and pepper to taste, this chicken salad offers a balanced combination of protein, crunch, creaminess, and tang, making it a versatile and satisfying dish. It can be served on its own, in sandwiches, or atop salads for a delightful meal option.
